Exchange 2003 with Active Directory 2003

We recently migrated from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2003 and also moved from NT to Active Directory 2003. One of the main reasons we moved was to implement the compliance features of Exchange 2003 and Journaling. We need to keep all our emails in a central holding area for possible SEC audits. This will enable us to search across all emails both in and out. This is working fine, however the rights to the journal email account are full rights. When we try to make them read only for compliance issues, we can't then view the emails in the journal email account. How do you prohibit deletions from this Journal email account?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you are truly going to do this for compliance then the best and only “compliant” way is to use a Third Party. This is in keeping with the SEC/NASD rule. The requirements are that the e-mails are off site in the event the SEC/NASD wanted to obtain them and the Broker/Dealer refused.

Check out the SEC/NASD compliance rule on this. We have used both EVault as well as Frontbridge.

Let me know if you need me to dig up the regs.

    Thanks for the response. The reference to this requirement by the NASD/SEC would be beneficial. However, we still want to or desire to make this Journal delete inhibit. Is there anybody that has done this with the Journal? I can't imagine for internal purposes for your firm, you would want these to be deleted. We still can howerver archive the journal email box so it doesn't get tremendously large. Thanks

    I aplogize for not reading more carefully. To confirm, you want to make it so the journaled e-mails CANNOT be deleted? Thanks-sf

    Yes, that is correct. We want it so the Journalized emails can not be deleted.
